Portugal to propose incentives for carriers to use Beja Airport over Lisbon Airport during peak seasons

    Portugal‘s Government and ANA Aeroportos de Portugal plan to develop an incentive initiative with tour operators offering point-to-point, integrated tour packages to utilise Beja Airport over Lisbon Airport to alleviate capacity restraints during peak seasons (PressTUR/Agência Lusa/jornaldenegocios.pt, 04-Jul-2018). Portuguese Minister of Planning and Infrastructure Pedro Marques said the initiative will not affect summer 2018, but aims to “greatly influence the organisation of operations in the coming summers”.
